Others - including the missing teen's mother, Chessie Wood, and two aunts - await trial.
Chessie Wood denies committing any crime, but says some of her closest relatives are guilty of abusing children, including of abusing her daughter."There are innocent people in this and there are guilty people in this," Wood, 39, said in an interview. 2 thing is to get all these sick (people) off the streets," she said.
The children of the suspects have all been placed in foster care or with relatives who weren't involved in the crimes.
Brittney Wood isn't the alleged victim in any of the cases filed so far; each involved other young people, mostly within her family.
Two of Woods's uncles, Dustin Kent and Scott Wood, were arrested within three weeks and later pleaded guilty to rape and sodomy. Last month, family friend Billy Brownlee, 50, was convicted in Baldwin County on charges of sexually abusing a girl in the Holland family when she was about 12.
Court records show she has pleaded not guilty, and Heinz said she shows no interest in a plea agreement.The investigation that followed has publicly unraveled what authorities describe as a dark, twisted tale of perversion in the working-class neighborhoods and piney backwoods of coastal Alabama.Eight of Woods' adult relatives and three family friends have been charged with dozens of felonies in two counties as the alleged members of an incestuous ring that authorities say shared children for group sex."You'd be surprised how many of them had prior allegations.Nothing happened," said Heinz, an assistant district attorney in Baldwin County.
